Now came still Evening on, and Twilight grey
Had in her sober livery all things clad;
Silence accompanied, for beast and bird,
They to thir grassie couch, these to thir nests
Were slunk, all but the wakeful nightingale;
She all night long her amorous descant sung;
Silence was pleas'd.

John Milton, Paradise Lost
Set to music by Charles Ives (Evening)
